    Hi everyone, I am a queer woman in my late 30s living in America. I'm out with a few people but most assume I'm straight as I'm currently married to a man.

    I've been having a harder time ignoring my desire to date and sleep with women, and this place was recommended as a safe place to strengthen my connection to allies as well as talk about maybe coming out as lesbian. Thus far I have preferred the word queer as I don't really see the value in getting overly specific (no offense to anyone that does find value in it), but I am considering ending my marriage so a large umbrella term isn't likely to work so well for my own thinking.

    Thanks for a safe place to learn and grow.

    Hi @QueerYogi and welcome to EC. :slight_smile:

    I realised my sexuality whilst in a long term relationship with a man and you’ll find lots of other people on EC who are or have been in a similar position.

    I hope that you find EC to be supportive.
